Kurt S. Adler
The story of Kurt S. Adler begins after World War II when Kurt Adler tried his hand at exporting general goods. As the business grew and European economies began to flourish, he changed direction to importing. In the 1950's, ornaments were first offered. Beautiful handmade angels from East and West Germany found an enthusiastic audience in America. The line was expanded with glass ornaments from Czechoslovakia, hanging ceiling decorations from Germany, and miniature lights from Italy. Suddenly, America was ablaze with festive decorations that offered a European flair. Today the family owned company still flourishes with the same love of Christmas.
